    Colonial Quito

    17 reviews

    I could spend hours walking around the cobblestone streets of Quito's "old town" historic district. Apparently this area used to be a pretty scary place not so long ago, but it seems like they've really made an effort to crack down on crime and clean things up. The architecture will make you feel like you're stepping back in time, and ...

    La Mitad del Mundo

    24 reviews

    Although no longer really the middle of the world...as per GPS, La Mitad del Mundo is still an important monument in its own rite and is still attracting visitors from all over the world to visit.

    Iglesia La Compañía

    10 reviews

    Iglesia La Compania was begun by Spanish Jesuits in 1605, yet this Church was not completed until 1765. The gold leaf interior is stunningly beautiful, and for me, this is one of the most beautiful Churches that I have seen in all of Latin America. You really need to walk inside and gaze at the gold leaf wall, the murals, ...

    San Francisco Church

    11 reviews

    This is the largest religious site in Latin America, the oldest in Quito built in the 15th century, and likely the most impressive! Its diverse architectural style is notable; its façade is built in a Renaissance fashion similar to that of the ‘El Escorial’, its interior is Baroque, and the coffer ceiling in the northex is in Moorish ornamentation. The ...

    La Basílica

    9 reviews

    The Basilica del Voto Nacional, wich took over hundred years to build (the first stone was laid on July 10th, 1892), is one of the last displays of ideology and partisanship by Catholic church, following the request during García Moreno's presidency that Ecuador be dedicated to the Corazón de Jesús. Father Julio María Matovelle pushed for the construction, for which ...

    Plaza de la Independencia

    7 reviews

    I liked the Plaza de la Independencia much better than I liked the palacio de la gobierno. When I was there, there were protests (against the current communist, pro-chavez government) in the Plaza, and there were snarling security forces everywhere. I felt very uncomfortable here, kind of like most people would feel in visiting Chavezes Venezuela.

    El Panecillo Hill and Momument

    7 reviews

    Quito's version of the Statue of Liberty - only it's a winged Virgin Mary rather than an incarnation of Egyptian Isis. Although I've spent years living in Quito, I actually only visited the statue once - on my first visit. It's a one-time kind of place - fantastic vistas of Quito and her surrounding volcanoes, but once you've seen it, ...

    TelefériQo

    6 reviews

    The teleferiqo is yet another thing you do just for the sake of it. I wouldn't say it's spectacular, but it's a nice weekend activity and the views are great if you've got good weather. It is by far the best view of Quito you can get. I was really tempted to explore more of the trails along Pichincha, but ...

    La Catedral

    5 reviews

    This beautiful cathedral holds a rich collection of sculptures and painting from the Escuela Quitan; “Descending of Christ” is probably the most famous as it is considered a masterpiece of impressionism. A variety of architectural forms are represented in the structure including Gothic in the arches, Moorish in the ceilings, Baroque in the main altar, and Neo-Classical style in the ...

    Parque La Carolina

    5 reviews

    Parque Caroline is sort of like Quito's version of Central Park (though not as nice and a lot smaller). My office-mates and I used to head here after work for pickup soccer. It's the place to be if you're interested in seeing local futbolistas in action, as there's pretty much always a game going on. Volleyball and capoeira are also ...
